SuperYacht of the Week

With six yachts measuring over 100 feet in length currently under construction at their shipyard in Ancona, Cantieri delle Marche (CdM) will soon have a global fleet of tough explorer type yachts cruising our oceans. Babbo is the second in the shipyard’s Darwin Class 102 line and follows in Acala’s footsteps as the brand’s flagship ambassador. Here we take a closer look at the blue-hulled Babbo.

Designed to take on difficult sea conditions with confidence,Babbois characterised by a functional layout and user-friendly on-deck features that would make longer voyages and extended periods at anchor comfortable. Her high freeboard drives through the choppiest of waters leaving her decks dry, and guests feeling safe.

Her generous beam and compact superstructure allow for extra large deck spaces compared to other yachts of this length.

The generous sundeck is fitted with bar, family-sized grill and an oversized sunpad area that surrounds a Jacuzzi.

Babbo’s well-appointed aft decks makeher the perfect family-entertaining explorer.

Her interiors are a collaboration between the South American designer Simon Hamui on behalf of the owner, and the PFA studio from Fano. A mixture of earthy and exposed natural elements creates a warm and welcoming atmosphere on board.

The lower deck has been dedicated as the yacht’s accommodation level, leaving the precious main and upper deck areas open for large social areas as well as the crew accommodation that is located forward on main deck.

Great attention has been paid to the storage of toys and tenders on board, with dedicated space in the 25 sqm garage as well as the aft platform and upper deck, where tenders of 5 metres and 6.30 metres will be stored respectively.
